NASA Shows Off 'Witch-Head' Nebula for Halloween

Posted: Updated:

Apparently they're celebrating Halloween up in space.

Researchers stumbled upon an infrared portrait just in time for Halloween... showing what appears to be a witch screaming out into space.

NASA says the witch head is a nebula — a massive cloud of gas reflecting light from nearby stars.

The image was spotted by NASA's wide–field infrared survey explorer ... Known simply AS W–I–S–E.

It's a space–based telescope that surveyed the entire sky between 2010 and 2011.
